It honestly feels like it has been a lifetime since Brexit began. And the sad part is that it’s not one of those situations where you can’t remember when it started, I remember everything about it. The referendum campaigns, the day it happened and the endless debates that I have got into regarding the ethical aspects. But I had one debate too many because as it turns out, none of us really know what is happening.
But that’s not what this post is about. This post is for everything other than Brexit.
So here are 7 things that aren’t particularly interesting, but are definitely more interesting than Brexit.
1- The time when Ukrainian soldiers threatened national security using a fitness app.
It was February this year when the Ukrainian marines gave away a secret location by using a fitness app that used GPS and allowed their enemies to find and track their frontline base.
2- Pot is legal being North Korea
Yes despite North Korea being known for its strict rules and forced regulations, it doesn’t seem to have a problem with pot. You may have known this already, but it is definitely more interesting than Brexit.
3- The UFO sightings in the Bermuda Triangle.
What’s more interesting than one weird thing? Two weird things! Yep, if the Bermuda Triangle wasn’t already spooky enough for you, you’ll love to know that not only are people disappearing but UFO’s are being found. People that have entered the deadly triangle, and come out alive have reported sightings of flying objects, aliens and some even suspect there is a portal to other planets??? Sounds a bit much to me but if that’s your thing then give it a google!
4- Barneys ‘ I love you’ song being also used for torture.
Yep that right, the ‘I love you, you love me…’ song is used as a form of torture in Guantanamo Bay. Why, I do not know, but it seemed to work pretty well on Daryl in that episode of The Walking Dead.
5- Guantanamo Bay detaining an innocent man.
Way more interesting than Brexit. In 2001, a journalist named Sami Al- Hajj was detained for 6 years upon visiting the prison but was completely innocent.
6- Russia creating a doomsday machine.
Russia has just created a doomsday machine that is able to create 300-foot waves. It is said to possibly be one of the strongest nuclear weapons ever. Definitely making Brexit a very dull issue.
7- Prison escape isn’t punishable by law in Germany.
If you were ever to get arrested in Germany (I hope you don’t) but if you are, I wouldn’t worry, as your sentence may just not be followed up if you manage to escape. Why is this? Well it seems, it is because ‘escape and freedom’ are basic, innate human needs and Germany believes you should be entitled to that human need. That’s FOR SURE MORE INTERESTING THAN BREXIT.
